I’ve carried a Maya Angelou quote with me for years. She says, “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.” This quote embodies so many of the things I think are important – recognizing and accepting what is or what has been, setting high expectations for what can be, and believing that we can change and grow for the better.
